Important Chanel S/S 1994 Bra, Jacket and Short Set

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

This set is the mother of all Chanel finds. This suit was a showpiece from Chanel's S/S 1994 collection, and has been heavily documented. It was worn by Amber Valletta and Carla Bruni on the runway, and featured in an iconic editorial in Vogue for that year. A variation of the same combo was also worn on the runway by Claudia Schiffer. Another version was worn by Helena Christensen. The set consists of a stunning peachy yellow and cream tweed bra, jacket and short set. The bra has fringing on the edges, and the shorts is fringed at the bottom. The jacket has cream braiding and white signature Chanel buttons on the sleeves. While this outfit is fabulous as a set, the three pieces look incredible worn separately as well.

Bra
